You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee… She is a great host… Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme… Yes, it’s a Fruitful Harvest challenge!
I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:
I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes’ Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics’ Holy Spirit’s Fruit.
I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.
I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes’ Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering another label from Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One. I cut the fancy label in three parts and adhered the pieces to the back of the stamped label, showing only the filigree edges.
The flowers were embellished with another altered die cut from Spellbinders Frosty Forms set. It is a Chistmas set but the round filigree label it includes actually matches the design nicely. I cut the label in half and added it around the fuzzy cut flowers.
My card base was layered with Carta Bella’s Hello Again paper pad. I did sponge the layers too with Peeled Paint Distress Ink, to give it sort the same tone. And finally I added the flowers on the tallest step, the two pears on the second step and the sentiment label on the front. To finish my design I added a few Baby Pearls – LeCreme.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and that you found my mini tutorial useful. I had fun making this card and I hope Lee likes it a lot!
